The graph is a good way to get your bearings on how different commits and branches relate to each other. However, it becomes much more usable, or readable, if you add a few more parameters: git log --graph --oneline --decorate --all (See git log --help for an explanation of each parameter.) For quick access, many people create an alias like git logtree : git config --global alias.logtree "log --graph --oneline --decorate --all" If you still don't like the ASCII-art graphics, try some graphical tool, like gitk --all -- You received this message because you are subscribed to the Google Groups "Git for human beings" group.
